Any bets on whether Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings applies in this case? From the New York Times news section:

3 Shot, Including a 4-Year-Old, in Times Square, Police Say

The police said that the child, who was shot in the leg, as well as two other victims, both women, were expected to survive.

By Troy Closson and Michael Levenson
May 8, 2021
U
A fight among several men in Times Square on Saturday led at least one of them to pull out a gun and open fire, injuring two women and a 4-year-old girl, the police said.

The girl, who was toy shopping with her family, was shot in the leg and expected to survive, as were the two women, a 23-year-old tourist from Rhode Island, who was also shot in the leg, and a 43-year-old from New Jersey, who was shot in the foot, the police said.

The victims, who did not know one another…

  1. Can’t you just feel the anticipation of de Blasio voters hoping to pick up a 57th street condo for half a million?

  2. The New York Time rule of mass shootings is that white supremacy to blame.

    Your otherwise idiotic comment contains one nugget of wisdom—your pointing out that China is in fact multicultural. As indeed every country is multicultural, from the perspective of its own citizens at least. Slovakia, which would look pretty homogeneous to Ibram Kendy, divides along a Slavic-Hungarian line. Minneapolis, even when it was 99% white, was multicultural; it had Swedes, Norwegians, Finns, Germans, Jews, etc. (Granted, that Minneapolis was unicultural in the sense of having few people whose culture runs to attacking people in the street.)

  5. Thanks again Steve for reading this stuff so the rest of us don’t have to.

    Having said that, I was so intrigued by the opening I had to go and see the rest.

    It turns out the article is a master class in obscurantism and dumb writing.

    “The flood of illegal guns into our city must stop” [said de Blasio].

    Those guns just walk in and think they own the place.

    The shooting came amid a rise in gun violence in New York City that has been sustained since early in the pandemic.

    This one actually made me laugh.

    The shooting was a rarity for the immediate area around Times Square. Much of the gun violence has been concentrated elsewhere.

    I’m not leaving out words. This is a complete paragraph.

    As the city nears a full reopening, some officials have worried that gun violence could make it more difficult to attract visitors.

    This is funnier than the first quote. Titania McGrath has finally infiltrated the NYT.

    “It worries you when it happens at somewhere as public as Times Square,” Rosario Duran, 26, said on Saturday.

    As opposed to the aforementioned somewhere else?

    Ms. Duran had arrived in New York City three days ago from Chicago to visit her sister. She was not in the area during the shooting but said the news was jarring. “I’m still glad I came,” she said. “I’m just going to be more careful.”

    I’m getting that on a t-shirt and sending it to the intended victim of ‘Knife Girl”.

    The Broadway show “Come From Away” said on Twitter that “everyone in the Schoenfeld, Golden & Booth theaters are all safe.”

    It did cross my mind how different this story would have been if the shootout occurred at a Broadway show. I have begged for the Lord’s forgiveness for thinking such a thing.

    All in all, I’d give this a 9/10 on the NYT Scale of Justice Scribbling.

    The overlap in the Venn diagram of "People who tend to settle casual arguments with their friends using badly aimed handguns" and "People who attend Broadway musicals" is VERY VERY small.

    Of course there are crowds in front of theaters when the shows are letting in and out. If the theaters had been open, the illegal guns could have just as well opened fire in front of one because illegal guns don't really care where they open fire because illegal guns have no consideration for human life - they just have a score to settle right them and there, wherever they may be. It's true that they mostly open fire in other neighborhoods, but you never really know where and when an illegal gun will open fire.

    @Change that Matters

    The original story makes a whole lot more sense- in the meaning of relating to reality- if you replace the "gun" with "black" throughout.

    The UK was multicultural when it just had English, Irish, Scots and Welsh - and there were big cultural differences inside each of those countries - big enough for a lot of people to be killed over the centuries, even before you think about the wars between them.

    Just take a look at this - Glasgow Rangers football/soccer supporters in Manchester for a European final. You do NOT see this in Bath - even when Gloucester are in town for the rugby.

    Minnesota was a terminus on the Underground Railroad.

    Later with the Great Migration, more Blacks would come to the Twin Cities.

    Prior to the mid sixties, they couldn't move into white areas. They lived in single family housing and had two parents. Black kids weren't killing just anybody for the thrill of it. No knives or guns at school.

    There was gang warfare, but it was fought between the gangs, without collateral damage, late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. In other words, everyone was civil.

    There was racism, but it was quiet. Nobody was looking to make trouble.

    Then the civil rights people got involved. Subsidized project housing, welfare to families conditioned on no man in the house, and money for nothing grants to race hustlers. Resulting in the destruction of life as everyone knew it.

    Unless one got lost, went to school in a border area, or had a paper route in a black area, one could go without knowing that blacks existed prior to 1964.

    Someone, who would think that Minneapolis/St. Paul was 99% white in the second half of the 20th century, didn't get around much.

    They bring in a bunch of temporary foreign workers and don't let them become citizens. Not much different than the US migrant worker program. The culture isn't multicultural. The Arabs set the culture and their labor adapts to it. If the price of oil were to drop they would be kicked out.

    But we can move to Iceland or Taiwan if you would like an example that doesn't involve wealthy Arabs.

    The theory that diversity = high standard of living is incongruent with history.

    I don't care if someone wants to argue for the value of diversity but to believe it is always economically beneficial is egalitarian propaganda. Brazil has long been more diverse than the US but their economy only started to pick up after US tech advances. Just look at their 50 year GDP. They have been third world for most of their history.

    The overlap in the Venn diagram of “People who tend to settle casual arguments with their friends using badly aimed handguns” and “People who attend Broadway musicals” is VERY VERY small.

    Of course there are crowds in front of theaters when the shows are letting in and out. If the theaters had been open, the illegal guns could have just as well opened fire in front of one because illegal guns don’t really care where they open fire because illegal guns have no consideration for human life – they just have a score to settle right them and there, wherever they may be. It’s true that they mostly open fire in other neighborhoods, but you never really know where and when an illegal gun will open fire.

    New York police ID suspect in Times Square shooting, say he meant to shoot his brother when 4yo girl & two women were hit


    The detectives spotted a man hanging around near the hotel who looked almost identical to the alleged Times Square gunman. When they began to question him and noted his resemblance to the shooter, the man said, "I'm his brother."

    He went on to tell officers that his brother was aiming at him when the shooting occurred, the New York Post reported. Police said Muhammad and his brother were among a group of men arguing when Muhammad pulled out his gun and started shooting.

    He missed his intended target, allegedly hitting a four-year-old girl from Brooklyn, a 43-year-old New Jersey woman and a 23-year-old Rhode Island tourist who was visiting New York with her husband and toddler for Mother's Day weekend. The Rhode Island woman, Wendy Magrinat, told NBC4 News that she heard an argument behind her just before the gunshots.

    Yeah, a half-dozen, all sitting on oil. But their workforces are multicultural. Because Arabs don’t work.

    They bring in a bunch of temporary foreign workers and don't let them become citizens. Not much different than the US migrant worker program. The culture isn't multicultural. The Arabs set the culture and their labor adapts to it. If the price of oil were to drop they would be kicked out.

    But we can move to Iceland or Taiwan if you would like an example that doesn't involve wealthy Arabs.

    The theory that diversity = high standard of living is incongruent with history.

    I don't care if someone wants to argue for the value of diversity but to believe it is always economically beneficial is egalitarian propaganda. Brazil has long been more diverse than the US but their economy only started to pick up after US tech advances. Just look at their 50 year GDP. They have been third world for most of their history.

    There was gang warfare, but it was fought between the gangs, without collateral damage, late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. In other words, everyone was civil.

    There was racism, but it was quiet. Nobody was looking to make trouble.

    Then the civil rights people got involved. Subsidized project housing, welfare to families conditioned on no man in the house, and money for nothing grants to race hustlers. Resulting in the destruction of life as everyone knew it.

    Police said a group of people between the ages of 18 and 22 who all were attending a function inside the hotel had an argument that escalated into shots being fired.

    “There was definitely more than one shooter,” she said. “After the argument, different people within that group began shooting at each other.”

    It was unclear what kind of event was being held at the upscale hotel located near the city’s convention center and close to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ ballpark and Phoenix Suns’ basketball arena.

    It's easy to win on GDP per capita when your population is drastically smaller. From 1960 to 2019, Brazil's population increased from 72 million to 211 million, a 193 percent increase. During the same time, Iceland jumped from 173,000 to 265,000, a 53% increase. In 1960 the difference between Icelandic GDP per capita and Brazilian GDP per capita was about $1200. So basically, you're coping with your long-term low fertility as usual. Do alt-right wimps have anything to brag about, other than their women's persistently low fertility? And keep in mind, Icelandics the historically been the most fertile in the developed world. Many developed world countries actually shrank in population.
